Adam’s Home N24 10.135 E32 51.971 (Aswan – NO LONGER EXISTS!)
Alternative not far from Adams Camp:
Ashraf’s Nubian Camp N24 06.572 E32 52.633 (Aswan – Coordinates not exact, most maps have no roads there) If you follow the road passing Adams Camp, on your right side there is a square with a mosque after about 7 km. Turn of right and keep on going up the hill. After 500 meters turn left and at the end of the road you will find it. If not ask for “Captain Ashraf’s home or camp” People are very helpful! Nice place, no shade, shower, toilet,electricity. Ashraf prepares food if you need – delicious – and you can make a sailing trip with a felucca on the Nile with him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
